This year, Austin restaurants are likely to experience a light crowd on Mother’s Day weekend amid the on-going threat of COVID-19. Although several Austin restaurants have reopened for in-house dining, many of them are still limited to offering takeout and curbside pick up options.
Despite the limited dining options, many of the restaurants have excellent takeout options and gifts to help us show moms how much we all appreciate them on their most celebrated day of the year.
